Ugly? Dude.... are you serious? This has got to be his first helmet that isn't so hectic but has an amazing design! This is the sickest helmet out there and the black and fluo version is fattest version of this helmet. All black is too boring, all the colors is a bit too much. When I am getting one it will definitely be this one. Black and yellow... Rossi style

All black is elegant.
The flashy colors are what prepubertal girls loves to wear.

Not officially distributed in Europa, so American shape only and not legal on road (although I don't give a crap about legal).
And my all carbon Arai already exceed it.

But what the Arai lacks is that shape. That shape is pure genius, and I can't wait to try this AGV.

That's something you are only afraid of, I know what I like and I find it not to be an overkill but the exact right combination of colors to take it from boring to crazy! It's a waste to wear this helmet in all black. But than again, you shouldn't be afraid that the colors make you a teenager, because if this is the case, it's likely that it's not about the helmet! But we're talking about taste here, hard to argue that! Think the all black is nice to...

It's not being afraid, I don't care about that. It's about either I want to be an x'mas tree or not. And I don't. :-)

And that goes for the replicas and the Ducati branded outfits.

Am I Valentino Rossi? Nope. Am I a Ducati employee ? Neither. Why would I pay to wear their colors and brand? They would pay me for advertising them on my outfits, that would make sense.

But they won't, and my bike is already branded Ducati, and my outfits branded Dainese, my helmet Arai and maybe soon AGV.

That's already a lot, especially since I am not a mall, but a man.

I bear with that since Ducati made the bike, and they have the right to sign their work. Same goes for the others. But wearing an AGV helmet with Rossi stuff would be going to far. I am not a slave of the overpriced advertising of a loser.

So, I'll keep my dignity, thanks.

In my mind I find it impossible to justify spending over 3k for an exhaust system, when soon there will be others as good or better for 1/3 the price and now I see helmets like the bell carbon at 3k. Man, and this helmet who knows how much!
I could afford them it's just is it worth it? Heck the BWM is 10k less then my S/abs and may be the better bike, that's hard enough to take. OK no more rambling...

The Bell Star in carbon is around $650 I think. This AGV is about $1000.
